Greenlee: I keep looking up at the sky, hoping that it didn't happen. You know, that Zach's plane didn't -- maybe it's just a bad dream.
Ryan: I know. I know.
Greenlee: This is the day that we'd all go home, Zach and Kendall would start their new life together, and now he's never going back. He's never going home.
Jack: There she is, back from Washington.
Jack: How was your meeting with the S.E.C.?
Erica: I am much more interested in you. The verdict really came in?
Jack: Yes. I couldn't get a postponement, so we're due in court soon.
Erica: And Greenlee?
Jack: She found the witness, got the information we needed to have the charges dropped.
Erica: That's wonderful!
Jack: Yeah, except she can't be found. I can't reach her. She's -- like she fell off the face of the earth.
Erica: No, I'm sure she's on her way home now.
Jack: She said she'd keep in constant contact with me. This silence -- I don't like it.
Ryan: I'm so sorry.
Greenlee: He was finally home. He and Kendall, the boys -- they were so happy. Oh, my God. Kendall. This is going to destroy her.
Kendall: Whoa! Hey! Watch! Stop. I've just mopped. It is still wet. Be careful. Ok?
Griffin: You just saved my life.
Bianca: This lifesaver is my sister, Kendall Slater. Kendall, this is Griffin Castillo.
Kendall: Oh. As in the Dr. Castillo that Zach brought in for the Miranda Center?
Griffin: Can I ask what the wife of Zach Slater is doing mopping hospital floors?
Kendall: It's a long story.
Griffin: I bet it's a good one.
Bianca: It's not bad.
Kendall: You're not what I expected.
Griffin: Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Kendall: No, it's just --
Bianca: Are you ok? Did it happen again?
Greenlee: This is going to kill Kendall.
Ryan: That's the Coast Guard. I need you to get back in the cave while I deal with this, ok?
Greenlee: Why? We have the evidence. So I jumped bail. I'm practically a free woman now.
Ryan: I didn't want to say anything earlier.
Greenlee: Pearson's confession.
Ryan: I lost it when I went in the water.
Greenlee: It's gone?
Ryan: I'm sorry. It's gone. You need to get in the cave.
Greenlee: No. I'm not going to hide.
Ryan: You're a fugitive.
Greenlee: No, Ryan, I have to go home. I have to be there to tell Kendall.
Amanda: Do you have time for coffee? I thought we could talk.
Jake: You want to talk about Pilgrims and turkeys and stuff, because I'll talked out about the Griffin thing.
Amanda: You haven't talked at all. Whatever he did to you --
Jake: It's so far in the past, I can't even remember it anymore. All right? Pssh.
Amanda: Then why did you hit him?
Jake: Because it felt good. It felt great, and I'm over it now. Over it. As much as I would like to stay here and swim around in those limpid pools of yours, I got to work, babe. I'm actually at work here. You hang onto that while I see you tonight.
Bianca: What's wrong?
Kendall: I just got dizzy for a second. That's all. Ahem.
Bianca: I know you're not on staff here, but would you mind checking her out?
Kendall: It was probably just the fumes from all this stuff.
Griffin: Are you sure you're ok?
Kendall: Yeah. I'm fine. Really.
Bianca: You don't seem fine. You should rest. You said you haven't been sleeping.
Kendall: Do you know how many floors I have to clean?
Bianca: And that you felt a chill last night. Hey, five minutes.
Griffin: Why don't I see if I can get you into an empty room, so you can take a break?
Ryan: Greenlee, you are not turning yourself in.
Greenlee: Don't try and talk me out of this.
Ryan: What happened to Zach was -- God, it's unimaginable, and I wish to God that I could've saved him, but we couldn't do anything about it. Ok? He died trying to help you, because he believed in you. He believed in your innocence. If he were here right now, the last thing that he would want is for you to turn yourself in for a crime that you didn't commit.
Greenlee: He died because of me.
Ryan: No, he died trying to keep you out of prison.
Greenlee: You're not talking me out of this.
Ryan: The hell I'm not. Please, Greenlee, just stay here. Please. Please.
Greenlee: I have to be with Kendall. I'm going home, even if it's in handcuffs.
Ryan: Ok. Ok. Ok. Just let me handle this. Let me go see what's going on. Just stay here for now, please?
Jack: I need to get this evidence. I need to submit it to the judge before that verdict is read. If Greenlee and Ryan aren't back here in time, we --
Erica: She could be found guilty?
Jack: Yes! And charged with violating her bail on top of everything else.
Erica: Jack, you know how Greenlee loves to make an entrance. I'm sure that she's gonna be here any minute.
Jack: I feel like I'm gonna lose it all over again.
Erica: "Again"? What happened?
Jack: Hayward happened.
Erica: Excuse me?
Jack: I was in the courtroom and there was a photograph of him that had been used in the trial. When I looked at it, all I could see was my daughter spending the rest of her life in prison for a crime she didn't commit, because of that son of a bitch! So I -- ripped the thing up. I would've turned that courtroom into kindling if it hadn't been for Krystal.
Jack: Yeah. She was worried about me.
Erica: Jack, you should've called me.
Jack: Oh, honey, look, you're up to your ears with that thing with the S.E.C.
Erica: I don't -- I mean, yes, I care about that, but you are my priority. Jack, I would drop anything to come to you if you needed me. And there's nowhere I'd rather be than with you.
Griffin: The room is yours for 10 more minutes.
Kendall: I won't even ask.
Griffin: Ok, but I want to ask. You, mopping floors?
Bianca: She stuck her neck out for a friend a few inches too far. She does that sometimes.
Kendall: Ergo, the mop.
Griffin: Wow. Will you be my friend?
Griffin: Yeah. I got to check on somebody upstairs. Are you sure you're gonna be ok?
Kendall: Never better.
Griffin: Ok. Miranda Center -- start thinking outpatient possibilities. I'll talk to you later?
Bianca: Ok. Absolutely.
Kendall: Binks, this is really silly. I'm completely healthy, I'm fine. And my work -- I'm way behind in schedule.
Bianca: But you still look tired.
Kendall: It's really hard for me to sleep without Zach next to me. It feels weird. The boys keep coming in. They keep waking up. They want water or a story. They keep asking, "When's Daddy coming home?"
Bianca: They miss him.
Kendall: Yeah. So we all just slept together, one big pile of us missing Zach.
Ryan: Coast Guard's already got men in the water.
Ryan: No. Nothing. I signaled them. They're on their way over here.
Greenlee: And I'll be here.
Ryan: "We." We will be here. We are going home together -- to Kendall.
Greenlee: I keep thinking about the last time I saw him. He dropped that letter from Kendall, and when we saw it was from her, he got this huge smile on his face. This doesn't make any sense.
Ryan: I know it doesn't.
Greenlee: How did this happen? Was it the engine? How?
Ryan: I don't know, Greenlee. But I promise I'm gonna find out.
Greenlee: What are we gonna do?
Ryan: We're gonna get through this.
Ryan: Together. We're gonna help Kendall, and we're gonna help the boys. Ok?
Greenlee: I just want to make this easier for her. I just want to spare her from this somehow.
Ryan: You can't spare her, but you can be there for her.
Greenlee: I may not be there for long.
Ryan: You are not going to prison, Greenlee. I don't care what I got to do. I'll do whatever I have to do to make sure that you're free to help Kendall survive this.
Bianca: Zach comes back tonight, right?
Kendall: Yeah. He's supposed to. I haven't heard from him yet, though.
Bianca: Did you call him?
Kendall: I tried, but his battery's probably dead.
Bianca: You and Zach -- you were finally home and happy.
Kendall: I know where this is going. I've heard this a million times from Zach. "I shouldn't have gotten involved. I should just stay out of it." This time Zach got involved, and I'm glad he did.
Bianca: You've just worked so hard to get your relationship in a good place.
Kendall: My relationship? What about yours? You and Reese? You even admitted that you guys were having problems, and are you working on it? No. The two of you are on opposite ends of the ocean, completely ignoring each other, acting like everything is peachy. How do you say that in French?
Bianca: Our marriage is fine.
Kendall: Well, so is mine.
Bianca: Why are we fighting?
Kendall: I don't know. I have no idea.
Erica: I am sure that Ryan's gonna get Greenlee back here in time for the verdict.
Jack: They're cutting it awfully close.
Erica: I just wish that I'd come back sooner for you.
Jack: No, no, no. Listen. What you're doing with the S.E.C. is important. How's it going? Is there any chance of getting Cortlandt back from J.R. soon?
Erica: They have yet to make a final decision. But I feel very strongly that I made a really big impression on the man in charge of the investigation.
Jack: I'm sure you did.
Erica: I just would rather have been here.
Jack: You listen to me. I never, ever want you to neglect your work to hold my hand, especially now with Palmer's company. There's too much at stake.
Erica: It's gonna be over soon, I just feel that, and we are going to have Cortlandt back in my hands and Caleb's.
Jack: I'm very proud of you. Making sure that Palmer's last wishes are honored, protecting his legacy -- it's good stuff.
Erica: Listen to me. Cortlandt Electronics -- yes, it's important to me. But our life together -- that's what really matters to me. Jack, we've been so close. I don't want to lose that feeling.
Jack: Neither do I. But the real world keeps getting in the way.
Erica: No, no, we can't let it.
Jack: If anybody can bend the real world to their will, it'd be you.
Erica: Then I want to get married.
Jack: That's what this -- that's what this rock is all about.
Erica: I mean now. I mean today you are gonna get the murder charges against Greenlee dropped, and then I want you to walk right down the corridor and get our marriage license. Ok? Please, let's get married before Thanksgiving? We would have so much more to be thankful for.
Griffin: Your mother's heart is fine. So is the rest of her.
Tad: She'll be glad to hear it. How's your jaw?
Griffin: It's sore. Your brother knows how to throw a punch.
Tad: He certainly does, and I should know. So maybe it's a good idea for you to keep your distance.
Griffin: Gladly. I'm not here to dig up any old dirt. I'm just here to do a job.
Tad: Speaking of which, are you still in touch with Carolyn?
Griffin: What's that?
Tad: Cara? Jake's ex-wife? The one who left him for you? What's the story?
Griffin: There's no story. I should get going. Opal's doctor's gonna prescribe her some medicine and discharge her.
Tad: Yeah, thanks. I'm sorry if she's -- whatever. If she keeps bugging you --
Griffin: Yeah, no sweat.
Tad: Hey. You here to see Opal?
Tad: My mother? The one who's getting discharged soon?
Jake: That's good. I'm right here? What?
Tad: I'm just making sure we're on the same plane of reality here. After I get her home, I want to talk to you.
Jake: Want to get a coffee?
Tad: Yeah. Sounds great.
Jake: Then you should grab it with Amanda, because she made me the same offer, and I've had my caffeine this morning, and I don't really want to talk.
Tad: Well, I beg to differ, you know? I'd say that the bruises on your knuckles say differently, as is the fact you can't focus on a conversation any time he's in the vicinity.
Jake: I'm focusing. I can hear what you're saying.
Tad: You, me, Krystal's. Ok? Be there.
Jake: We're having tea, though.
Amanda: Oh, Dr. Castillo.
Griffin: You can call me Griffin.
Amanda: That's probably better than what my husband would call you.
Griffin: He's not the first person that's wanted to punch me in the face.
Amanda: Yeah, about that, I really wanted to apologize.
Griffin: I think his knuckles got the worst of it. I got a pretty hard head.
Amanda: It's weird, right, the coincidence? You and Jake haven't seen each other since Doctors Without Borders, and now you happen to end up in the same hospital in Pine Valley.
Griffin: Do you want to ask me something? Ask.
Amanda: I wanted to know if you wanted to have lunch -- my treat -- to make up for my husband using you as a punching bag.
Griffin: Free lunch, pretty woman -- I'm in.
Kendall: I guess I'm a little edgy.
Bianca: It's all right. Being away from the person you love will do that to you.
Kendall: I haven't heard from her. Did she respond to you about Thanksgiving?
Bianca: Her project's at a critical stage. It's not like Paris stops to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Kendall: I'm sorry about that.
Bianca: Me, too.
Kendall: You know what? You guys are gonna work it out. You will. Look at me and Zach. We completely closed ourselves off from the entire world. We sailed all over the entire ocean -- all the oceans -- and then we ended up right back here, where we are meant to be.
Bianca: Ok. Stop rubbing it in.
Kendall: Ok. I'm just saying. When Zach comes home, no more long-distance anything. I don't care who sits where on Thanksgiving, as long as Zach is next to me.
Ryan: Coast Guard should be here any second.
Greenlee: I know.
Ryan: I love you.
Greenlee: I love you. Just when we finally found each other again --
Man: This is the Coast Guard. Come out of the cave, slowly.
Greenlee: Time to go.
Ryan: Yeah. Hey, um -- I really -- I meant what I said when I put this on your finger.
Greenlee: It feels like a year ago already.
Ryan: Hang on to it, ok? Hang on to that moment, to this place. Hang on to me.
Jake: Eagles, baby! Hello? Yeah. I think it's gonna be a good year. I feel it in my bones. What's better than that anyway -- Thanksgiving and football? You know what we should do? We should have a little Martin classic touch football game this year. We'll toss Damon around, show him how we do.
Tad: You're amazing.
Jake: I am amazing. And you're gonna want me on your team, because last year I had four touchdowns by myself, with no help from you.
Tad: I'm not talking about your athletic prowess. I'm talking about the fact that you can go skittering from football to Thanksgiving in one breath. Anything to avoid talking about Dr. Castillo.
Tad: You're doing it again.
Jake: I'm not skittering. I'm not avoiding. I'm not doing any of that stuff. There's just nothing to talk about.
Tad: Jake, come on. Who are you kidding? The guy stole your wife. Ok? Now he's strutting around, throwing his elbows around your hospital. I'm just counting the minutes before you go Rocky Balboa on him.
Jake: "He's a dinosaur, Rock! He'll knock you into tomorrow!" I'll tell you again, even though I told you a million times, but I don't have a problem with that, because you're a little slow. What happened with Cara and this guy is history. I don't care. It means nothing to me.
Tad: It didn't seem like that when you tried to take the skin off his face.
Jake: My fist, his face -- closure. I saw his face, and it -- I had -- it was just all hitting, and I wasn't thinking.
Tad: Fine. How's this for a shock? What happens if he decides to stick around? What if he's here to stay? What are you gonna do then?
Tad: Who do you think you're talking to? It's me. Come on. I know how hurt you were. When Cara ran off, it devastated you. It took you forever to say one word to any of us about it.
Jake: I don't care about Cara.
Tad: You're a liar.
Amanda: It must be exciting working for Doctors Without Borders.
Griffin: Yeah. Jake didn't tell you any stories?
Amanda: Tons. You guys are true heroes.
Griffin: Oh. I don't know about that. It was rough being without cable TV. How long have you two been married?
Amanda: About a year and a half.
Amanda: Pretty much. Did you know Jake's ex-wife Carolyn?
Amanda: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. You're the guy that she left with. You're the one who broke up their marriage?
Griffin: I guess you could say that.
Spike: Will Daddy Zach be at the play?
Kendall: Front and center. You know Daddy Zach never breaks a promise, so I'm sure he's on his way home right now.
Spike: I miss Daddy Zach.
Kendall: I know, honey. Me, too.
Jack: Where the hell are they?
Erica: They'll be here.
Jack: Greenlee? What happened?
Erica: What's going on?
Ryan: Greenlee turned herself in in California.
Jack: Why? I thought you were on the way back with that evidence.
Ryan: Yeah, the Coast Guard showed up.
Jack: The Coast Guard?
Ryan: There was a -- there was a crash.
Jack: Where is Zach?
Erica: Zach? What does Zach have to do with this?
Ryan: After your plane dropped us off in California, Zach helped us out to get to the island, so that we could confront Pearson, and he was on his way back to pick us up.
Erica: And why isn't he here?
Ryan: He didn't make it.
Erica: What do you mean, he didn't make it? Ryan?
Ryan: His, um, his plane exploded in midair.
Jack: Oh, dear God.
Ryan: I'm sorry, Erica. I'm so sorry Zach's gone.
Kendall: Let me see. This is fabulous! You are so good! Daddy Zach is just gonna love this. I know he is. How about you go and draw another one in the kitchen?
Kendall: Yeah? All right. I bet Ian and Sandra want to help you. But first, I think I need some kisses from you! Give me kisses! I need kisses from you right now. And this one's from Daddy Zach. I'll get the lipstick off your head. Ok. Go play, angel. Go. See you. See you. See you.
Zach's voice: It's Zach. Leave a message.
[Voice mail beeps]
Kendall: Hi. It's me again. So the chief is very anxious to rehearse with you, and I wouldn't mind seeing you myself. I've had about five minutes of sleep since you left, so I'm a wee bit on the tired side. Where are you? Call me back. I love you. And I'm going to buy you a thousand battery chargers when you get home, which, I hope, is very soon -- like maybe now would be nice. You know, who knows? Maybe you'll kiss me awake. That would be good. Hmm.
Jake: Brother, maybe I'm just trying to forget everything. Maybe I just pushed it so far down that it's archaeology now. It's hard to find. The thing is I have Amanda now, and she's my life, and whatever I had with Cara can't touch what we have.
Tad: Ok. Well, for a guy that supposedly doesn't give a damn, you took a pretty fair shot at trying to rearrange his face.
Jake: Oh. I saw him. It took me by surprise, so I don't know. Feelings came up and memories, you know? They were all bad.
Tad: Yeah? That's generally what happens when you try to sit on crap like this for too long. It's probably why it would've been a good idea for you to talk about it a little sooner.
Jake: How do you talk about something when you don't quite understand it yourself? Brother, I was married. We were happy. We were working together every day, and the next thing you know, she gets in a truck with that -- and there was no explanation. Nothing. And then she's gone.
Tad: Does Amanda know any of this?
Griffin: Sorry about that -- clinic that I used to run in New Orleans.
Amanda: So you and Cara and Jake?
Griffin: Cara and I had a moment. You know how these things are.
Amanda: So it's over just like that?
Griffin: There was no parting gifts, but it wasn't ugly either.
Amanda: Oh. So you're one of those?
Griffin: One of what?
Amanda: The guys who brag about still being friends with the girls they break up with, even if they shredded them?
Griffin: Who says I wasn't the shreddee?
Amanda: Are you saying that?
Griffin: What I'm saying is Cara went her way, I went mine.
Amanda: And that's it?
Griffin: Happily ever after, wherever she is.
Amanda: Someone contacted Jake about a position at Doctors Without Borders.
Griffin: Wasn't me.
Amanda: Any idea who it was?
Griffin: No clue.
Erica: No, no, this is not possible. It doesn't make any sense. Zach can't be gone.
Ryan: We heard his plane coming in. We were getting our things together, and then we heard the explosion. We ran out. There was just wreckage raining from the sky. I went into the ocean. I searched. I just -- nothing.
Erica: Zach. Kendall.
Kendall: Ohh. I've been waiting for you.
Zach: Always, only you.
Amanda: So from Doctors Without Borders to the Miranda Center, you're still helping people.
Griffin: Yeah. I'm excited about starting new centers and expanding our outreach.
Amanda: Hmm. I've been thinking about volunteering there.
Griffin: You should. That would be great.
Jake: How are you? Castillo. Yeah, babysitter said I could find you here.
Amanda: Yeah. What's up?
Jake: Greenlee's having her verdict read, and I thought maybe you'd want to be with me.
Amanda: I do. I should probably call Cami, let her know I'll be a little later than I thought. Shall we go?
Jake: Why don't you go call her, and I'll wait for you here.
Amanda: That's not a good idea.
Jake: I'll keep my fists to myself. So you asked my wife to lunch?
Griffin: She asked me. She also said that someone contacted you about a position at DWB.
Jake: You already know that.
Griffin: But you didn't tell her that Cara contacted you?
Jake: Why is any of this your business? Hmm? I don't understand. I'm not taking the job, so I'm quite happy where I am.
Griffin: Yeah, I can see that. You got a wife, a son, and a really great gig here. I should get going.
Jake: Back to where you came from?
Griffin: No. Back to the Miranda Center. And next time, I'll hit you back.
Jack: I've got to go talk to these officers for just a second.
Erica: Yes. Go. I have to -- Kendall -- she doesn't know, does she?
Greenlee: Erica, I'm so sorry.
Erica: No, don't. Don't even talk to me.
Greenlee: I never wanted this. You have to believe that.
Erica: The only thing I know is that my daughter's husband is dead.
Greenlee: And I'm so sorry about that.
Jack: I need you to go with these officers to get processed.
Greenlee: No. I need to be with Kendall. I have to be there to tell her.
Erica: No, you don't.
Greenlee: I came back to be with her. I need to see her.
Jack: And we will get you to her as soon as we possibly can, but you got to get processed first.
Ryan: It's ok, Greenlee.
Greenlee: No, it's not ok. She'll think that --
Erica: I will tell her!
Ryan: You stay with your father. I'll go with Erica.
Greenlee: Ohh. Thank you.
Ryan: And we'll go together. Ok? It's gonna be ok.
Greenlee: Will you please tell her that -- I don't know.
Erica: Ryan, we have to go.
Kendall: The boys are gonna be so happy that you're home!
Zach: Stay with me just a little while longer.
Kendall: You feel so good.
Zach: "God is gracious."
Kendall: Ian's name -- you chose the perfect one.
Zach: You fought so hard for him.
Kendall: So did you. Four more. I think we have to have four more. You want a whole hockey team, so we need four more -- I think a few girls thrown in. I have missed you so much.
Zach: Don't miss me. There's no need. Look in our boys' eyes, you'll see me. Hear them laugh, you'll hear me. You feel their hands, you'll feel me.
Kendall: I know this sounds silly, but when you're not here -- just promise me you'll never leave again.
Zach: Wind on your cheek, I'm with you. The warmth of the sun on your hair, I'm with you. "No end, no limit, no fear." That's how we loved. That's how you'll live.
Kendall: How we'll live forever.
Zach: Forever. [Kissing]
Kendall: "Always, only you."
Amanda: Did you punch Griffin out, shove him under the bar?
Jake: No. He just had someplace to be. So if we are gonna go to the courthouse together, I need to stop at the hospital first, because I have to do something. You forgot to mention that you were having lunch with this guy.
Amanda: You forgot to mention that you punched him, because he's the guy that Cara left you for.
Jake: So then lunch was a success for you? Hmm? You got the scoop you were looking for? You invite this guy to lunch so you could pump him for information?
Amanda: You weren't talking.
Jake: It's old news.
Amanda: I ask you things straight out, and you don't answer me. You tell me everything, I tell you everything. So when you don't answer me --
Jake: It's not important anymore. It's not important.
Amanda: Or maybe it still hurts so much that you don't want to talk about it -- at least to me. My mind goes to all these places that I don't want it to go.
Jake: I love you.
Amanda: I know. I love you. And when you're in pain, I want to help you. And that is why I want you to tell me everything that there is to tell about you and Cara. You can tell me. You can tell me what happened between you guys. Why did she leave you?
Jack: Yes. Thank you. The judge is waiting. So if you could give me that evidence of Pearson's confession, I can submit to her before the verdict comes back.
Greenlee: I don't have it.
Jack: What do you mean, you don't have it?
Greenlee: It was in Ryan's pocket, and when he jumped in the water to find Zach --
Jack: It was ruined? So we have nothing standing between you and that verdict?
[Knock on door]
Kendall: Zach. You forget your phone charger, you forget your keys, but at least you are home! Oh. Hi. I was hoping you were Zach.
